Tasty

A bit pricey but the food is great. I had an amazing soup-creme and cider, they also serve pasta an burgers for gourmets. You can eat inside or on the terrace and staff is very friendly.

I have been passing this restaurant many times without going inside - it just does not look that attractive but it is always busy. So finally I tried it. It it was good I did! A very friendly and quick service was compensating for this restaurant being indeed more a kind of "student pub" - you won't bring your customers... More

I know and then visit and it is a fantastic place to meet with friends, for sure when the terrace is opened. Good offer of beers and snacks. But it is the atmosphere and the service which make the difference. Biggest problem can be to find a place. Recommended

Very good food that's reasonably priced with many vegetarian options. The staff is very kind and service is quick. The menu changes every now and so there's always something new. The atmosphere is very cosy and there's a large terrace to enjoy your food outside. The owners are young people from Leuven and are very friendly, it's nice to support... More

I have eaten at Kaminsky several times over my visits to the Leuven area. Kaminsky's has a decent selection of options. My food, while not fancy, was presented well and was quite enjoyable. Each time I have been here I have eaten outside. It was very pleasant and I highly recommend it when the weather allows. Service was adequate and... More

We visited Kaminsky for the second time in a year, and were not disappointed. Their garden is excellent for an afternoon drink on a summer(-ish) day. The food they serve is very basic, but both times we were surprised by the quality and freshness of the homemade style dishes. They always have ten dishes to choose from and the cuisines... More

Have eaten three times now in this busy café and three times the food was absolutely terrible. I suspect the people that liked the food have some sentimental relation to this place. Our dishes were dismal. Pasta scampi was a bowl of sticky tagliatelli with a few scampis on top and some nuts, the vegetarian lasagna turned nasty overnight, the... More

Very good bar with a limited changing menu. Never been disappointed here, great food for little cash, fast service (perfect for lunch) and very friendly. Also nice to sit outside here!
